Mourners and protesters take to the streets after the country suffered its deadliest weekend since the February 1 military coup. Funerals are being held for some of the more than 100 victims who were killed by soldiers and police, as the regime staged a major show of might for Armed Forces Day. The violence over the weekend that took the lives of a number of child victims was ‘brutal savagery’ that showed ‘the real face of the Burmese military’ according to Human Rights Watch, but there will be ‘continued resistance and protests’.
